Uncertainty propagation – how it works

We’ve had a bit of interest in propagation of uncertainties in Iolite, so I thought I’d try to do two things in this post and the next. In this post, I’ll have a go at describing our protocol for propagating uncertainties. There is a description of the method in Paton et al. (2010), but I’ll…

I’ll use the existing “Sr_isotopes_REE” DRS as an example – it’s distributed with Iolite, which should make life easy for anyone that wants…
